China: A Historical Collection is an app from the British Library that contains 60+ works that illustrate China and the Chinese as they were understood and experienced by Westerners in the 19th century.

This app of 19th-century works contains texts on the daily life, customs, politics, government, peoples and religions of China. In addition, it contains reference works, fiction, children's books, travel narratives and tourist guides. China: A Historical Collection offers the reader an in-depth sociological study of a nation as well as an in-depth look at the historical crossroads of two cultures.
